We govern with broken wings, using fear and beauty as our weapons.
Through inherited traditions, each of us are born to play individual parts in our reign. In previous years, the transition has been calm.
Until our generation is unveiled.
Newcomers step forward to wreak havoc amongst us. Secrets are revealed, loyalties are tested, and the dark truth of our town is forced into the light.
Townspeople, prepare to meet your judge, jury, and executioner.
We are the Angels of Belle Meade.
We’ll be coming for you.

Reviewed by Emma-Louise on behalf of KFF

With the number of books I read, it is difficult to find a premise that is new to me. New adult paranormal romance with so many new spins, I felt a little dizzy at times.

Lennox, Amilee, and Emerson have a strong bonded friendship, one that has stood the test of time. That is until they reach their nineteenth birthday and things change…dramatically.
The premise of the Angels is more like: Judge, Jury, Executioner for the town of Belle Meade, and this is as far as I’m going into this because I want you to experience it for the first time whilst reading.

Belle Meade, to me, is built on secrets and lies. The girls had no idea what was underneath their feet for most of this book and what they were told was spoon fed to them in small noses.

Edric and his family are very unusual characters. It took me a considerable amount of time to figure out what on earth was going on with them. He was the kind of character I wanted to sink my teeth into and get to grips with. His attraction to Lennox was swift and profound.

‘On the third step, I peek over my shoulder. Could he stare any harder at me?
“You aren’t going to kill me, are you?”
“If I were going to, do you think I’d let you know? Murderers don’t advertise. They lurk in the dark, waiting to pounce on their victim, listening to their blood race through their veins, desperate to spill it.”’
 

Lennox has so many issues to overcome throughout this book that at times I just wanted to put her in my pocket. Her mother is a right act, and I don’t mean in a good way.

This is a new author for me and I’d not be lying if I said I wanted very much to read some more of what she has. Thank you for a new take on something I didn’t think could be done any different. Well done and bravo.

One of the windows looks out over Belle Meade. Every landmark is easy to spot from this vantage point. Main Street lined with cars. Shoppers buzzing in and out of stores. City Hall packed with business suits.Across from us is a telescope. When I move toward it, Edric blocks my path. I place my hand low on his stomach and stand on my tiptoes, knowing it will distract him.“Let me take a peek, Edric.” My lips feather his skin.“Be my guest.” He moves out of my way, and I walk past him, breathing in a lungful of air scented with his cologne. The cedarwood isn’t too strong but enough to grab my attention.I place my eye up to the eyepiece and gasp. I jerk back, only to return for another look.“It’s on my house.”“It’s not what you think.” He wrings his hands together, but guilt doesn’t fall from his face like I half-expect.“Why?”“Why, what?”“Why is your telescope pointed at the Mayor’s Manor? Specifically, why is it pointed at my bedroom window?”“Curiosity.” He releases a long, annoyed breath.“You’re a Peeping Tom.” A deep scowl creases my forehead. Edric’s been watching me.

“Call it whatever you want, Lennox. I wanted to look at you, so I did.” He runs his thumb over his bottom lip and smirks.

The news should scare me. His viewing me in secret doesn’t elicit fear, though, and I’m not sure why. I want him to watch me, to see me. Maybe he’ll be the first person who finally does, even if it is in the creepiest way possible.

On the other hand, it’s an invasion of my privacy. “What have you seen?” I ask, because even though I shouldn’t get giddy from the idea, a thrill runs through me.

“Just a girl, who sometimes seems to struggle with who she is. So, she writes in her journal a lot, because it’s the only place she can tell her true fears and desires.” He shakes his head. Is he fearful of what he’ll say next? “I’d give anything to know the secrets you whisper into those pages, Lennox.”
 

 
 

 

MEET LINDSEY 

Lindsey Iler has had her feet planted in the state of Michigan since she was born and she still lives there with her husband and four kids.

When she’s not writing, she’s spending time with family and friends, listening to music, reading (obviously), and hopefully just enjoying every moment in life. She has a twisted sense of humor and tends to speak honestly.

Lindsey writes mature young adult/new adult contemporary romance. She falls in love with every character that pops into her head and is notorious for writing long chapters in her notes on her iPhone. It’s embarrassing how many started/unfinished projects are on that thing. She finds inspiration from music and the people around her.
